Afterschool STEM Series at STEM Studio

UPDATE: Our team has been monitoring the quickly evolving COVID-19 situation closely and abiding by official recommendations from the Office of Emergency Management and the Florida Department of Health. After further review of the latest recommendations, we have decided to postpone our March and April programming. Please stay tuned to this page for a new date and more updates. If you have already registered, it will be honored on the new date.
